Economic Freedom in Joplin, Missouri

This is the story of how increasing - rather than restricting - the freedom for individuals effected by 2011's devastating tornado in Joplin, MO to rebuild their homes and businesses has been a big success for the people in the region. Without government instituting price or wage controls, tightening licensing for buildings and contractors, and with low involvement or control from FEMA, individuals working together voluntarily were able to make a huge difference.

GE's American Competitiveness: What Works Showcase

I recently had the opportunity to tackle a huge challenge, producing an excessive amount of media over the course of four days for mega-corporation, General Electric. They hosted a showcase of innovation here in Washington, DC called "American Competitiveness: What Works" during February 13th-16th, 2012 and I was contracted to produce all of the ENG-style material to be used internally & externally.

It was a huge project, so I hired a crack team of aids to help take the burden of shooting (mostly) off of me, freeing me up to do the massive amount of editing and directing needed to get the job done. My team included Riaz Virani, Caleb Brown, Dustin Oakley and Kate Robards.

Without them, this most certainly wouldn't have been possible, but thanks to their assistance, CitizenA produced 34 separate published & public videos and we shot 19 other interviews, an hour-long panel discussion and another 30GB of b-roll that may be made public at a later date.

Here's some of what we made:

 

 

  


ReCycle - ReCreate - ReImagine

This is a documentary project I produced with my good friend & occasional guardian angel, Jessica Willis. It's based on an art show & auction in the Hudson Valley, New York held to benefit Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The challenge was to take only found objects from the ReStore facility, and turn them into works of art. And... Because this part of New York is filled with amazing artists, they created a lot of really incredible things.

Hammertime Collection

While at the Daily Caller, I co-wrote, produced and edited a series of videos with Mary Katharine Brewer (née Ham) called "Hammertime". Here is the result of that project over the 8 months or so I was there:
